Biden’s Mask Mandate War on We The People

“For every complex problem, there is an answer that is clear, simple and wrong.” – H. L. Mencken, American journalist, essayist, satirist, cultural critic.

Government mandates on getting vaxxed and wearing masks has been a contentious issue from the start. It is now coming to a head in Canada with the truckers Freedom Convoy and across America as well.

The Daily Mail’s Ronny Reyes, in anBlue surgical face masks are only 10% effective in preventing COVID infection, new study finds”  wrote:

  • University of Waterloo researchers find most cloth masks are only 10% effective
  • Researchers warn most cloth masks do not cover the face properly  
  • N95 or KN95 masks were found to be the most effective at filtering aerosols
  • Study also found that even ‘moderate ventilation’ matches the best of masks in terms of protection against COVID-19
  • Mask debate remains contentious in the country as delta variant spreads 

Masks and mask mandates

Masks have now become a big issue and Biden administration/CDC guidelines on wearing masks are coming into question.

It seem that governors of blue states are now gradually unmasking their people. It appears that their people have had enough and with the midterm elections on the horizon that Biden, CDC and the Democrats masking of America has fallen out of favor. Why, because it is impacting the economy, culture and health of Americans.

But Biden isn’t backing down, he’s doubling down on mask mandates.

During the February 9th, 2022 White House press conference Jen Psaki was asked about the White House’s COVID-19 policies. Watch the entire February 9th press conference:

Psaki was questioned about the economy, Covid restrictions and about blue states, like New York, lifting their mask mandates and a return to normalcy. The first question ask:

And if I could ask a question about — New York, today, was the latest to work on their mask mandates.  Several states are now, it seems, well ahead of the federal government in explaining the path out of the pandemic.  Is the President now falling behind states in explaining to Americans how are — we all can, sort of, resume our normal lives and get back to normalcy?

When asked if citizens should follow the CDC mask guidelines Psaki said,

“Yes. This is where we would advise any American to follow the CDC guidelines … no parent who wants to send their kid with a mask should be penalized. No teacher who wants to wear a mask should be penalized, or school district who makes that choice should be penalized.”


Jen, quick follow-up on that.  Does the administration risk looking out of touch with where the country is heading, in terms of lifting these mask mandates, if the CDC doesn’t revise its guidelines?


Well, again, we understand where the emotions of the country are, right?  People are tired of masks.  I would say not even — if you look at the polling though, there’s also a huge chunk of people who still want masks.  Right?  So, it’s not even that specific.  It’s just that, as you noted, there are some states that are moving towards rolling back or giving more choice to local communities about how they will implement these requirements.

But, again, from the federal government, what our responsibility to do is to abide by what the President committed to on the campaign, which is to listen to scientists, listen to data.  That doesn’t move at the speed of politics; it moves at the speed of data.  And they — Dr. Walensky committed to — conveyed — or, I should say, confirmed that they were evaluating this at the CDC.

Following the data, not the politics

Psaki’s February 9th, 2022 statement is at best a lie and at worse a myth. To repeat Psaki said, “But, again, from the federal government, what our responsibility to do is to abide by what the President committed to on the campaign, which is to listen to scientists, listen to data.  That doesn’t move at the speed of politics; it moves at the speed of data.”

But the data is already in on the usefulness of masks.

Dr. Nancy Messonnier, Director of the Center for the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases said on January 31st, 2020,

We don’t routinely recommend the use of face masks by the public to prevent respiratory illness. And we certainly are not recommending that at this time for this new [Covid] virus.”

Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said,

[T]he average American does not need a N95 mask. These are really more for health care providers. He was echoed by Robert Redfield, Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, who told the House Foreign Affairs Committee that there ‘is no role for these masks in the community’.

A 2011 randomized clinical trial found that medical masks offered no protection at all.

A 2015 study concluded rates of infection were especially high in cloth masks, finding particle penetration in nearly 97 percent of them.

A 2016 paper that analyzed six clinical studies found that N95 respirator masks fared no better than medical masks in preventing respiratory infection.

As recently as April 7, a paper analyzing data from 15 randomized trials concluded that,

“[C]ompared to no masks there was no reduction of influenza-like illness cases for influenza for masks in the general population, nor in healthcare workers.”

Perhaps similar reasoning guided the CDC’s about-face in April when it issued guidance recommending the use of cloth face coverings for healthy individuals (though the World Health Organization still advises against them).

The Bottom Line

Masking America isn’t about science or data. Masking Americans is purely politics and all about control. How do we know? Because 221 House Democrats voted to block the  “Unmask Our Kids Act.”

The Daily Callers’ Nicole Silverio in an article titled, “White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said Wednesday there is a “distinct difference” between Democratic governors scrapping mask mandates and Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ handling of COVID-19” reported:

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said Wednesday there is a “distinct difference” between Democratic governors scrapping mask mandates and Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ handling of COVID-19.

“We had another state today drop the indoor mask mandate as the CDC is confirming that their guidance is not changing. But these decisions that are being made at the local level… are out of step with the science,” one reporter began. “So, why are we not hearing the same messaging criticizing states that are, you know, making these moves like we heard previously with, for instance, Ron DeSantis?”

“I would say there is a distinct difference between standing in the way, which Ron DeSantis did — or, Governor DeSantis, I’ll give him his full title — of teachers, school administrators and others taking steps to protect the students and their school communities,” Psaki answered. “There’s a difference between standing in the way of it — threatening to pull back funding — and allowing for local school districts to make choices, which is what a number of these states are doing.”

The Foundation for Economic Education (FEE) wrote:

In a sense, the mask craze is largely about managing our fears. As my colleague Sean Malone recently observed, when people are afraid they’re much more willing to accept anything they believe might make them a little safer. Even really bad policies and ideas.

The illusion of safety. It’s a powerful thing. For both humans and governments, it would seem.

John F. Kennedy said, “The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie, deliberate, contrived and dishonest, but the myth, persistent, persuasive and unrealistic.”

Masks don’t make us safer according to the data and science. However, the myth that they do is driving individuals, communities, government at all levels force We The People into believing that masks work.

What we are witnessing is mass formation psychosis.

Biden’s mask mandate war on we the people will continue and we the people will either succumb or fight back.
